13 May Algerian Desert: Rock Arch and a Dramatic Landscape
While I’m again visiting the beautiful South Africa, I can’t help going back to more memories of astounding Africa: the Algerian desert, the wonderful people of the Gambia, the stunning Okavango delta in Botswana and the breathtaking Victoria Falls.
Algeria is one of the countries which immediately won my heart, one I swore I’d be back as soon as my trip was finished. Endless stretches of dunes, lunar landscapes, ancient cave art, rock formations which often look as if they were sculpted by the wind, the Touareg culture.
More than six years later, I still haven’t gone back and lately the south of the Algerian desert isn’t safe anymore. Hopefully, more stable conditions will soon be restored. I long to see the desert again.
